I like all the graphics but my favorite is the games with toon link graphics and charater design why because it's soooo cute (coming from a girl lol) plus they can put humor in the game cause last time i checked humor would not work in a game like tp. I also like the sws graphics it's soooooo pretty lol

The Toon Link style has grown on me. I used to ask why they didn't just focus on making Link more realistic. The toon style does have a pretty good charm to it though. Even so, I prefer the Link from TP. I think the cartoon Link is good for DS like games though. I just feel the toonness takes a little bit of the epicness away.
The Ganondorf fights in WW and TP for expample. Both are epic in my opinion, but having to hit Ganondorf in the butt is kind of goofy. And what happens to Ganon at the end of TP (trying to keep some spoilers out of this), is a little cooler in my opinion as well.
I like the darker, more realistic, Zelda...not saying Toon Link is bad though!

I personally enjoyed Toon Link, The Wind Waker is my favorite Zelda game too.

I love Wind Waker, its a masterpiece. The cartoon version of Link is so much more expressive with his emotions, I used to love rotating the camera and seeing his expressions on his face. The whole art design was amazing to me. Its the little things from the humor to the view from a child's perspective that made the game so unique.

Edit : And you can actually relate to cartoon Link, the realistic one is so boring and has little to no personality.

It's funny that people hate a cartoony Link yet don't complain about the cartoony-ness of the original Zelda games. Even Link to the Past had comedic moments (Ie enemies falling into bottomless pits).

Anyway, as a fan of animation (cartoons, etc) I like 'Toon Link' and the first game he starred in. WW, while cartoony, had a very dark plot and Link actually had a resemblance of a personality. Other Links never expresses the same type of emotions Toon Link has, and Ganon wasn't a typical bad guy. Yes, you can't judge anything by its cover.

Wait a minute. You expect us poor, innocent children to climb up dangerous scaffolding and paint naked people all over a church? We'll do it! But we're not doing it for art. We're not doing it for the sake of money. No! We're doing it because we love painting naked people.

Toon Link is my favourite iteration of Link as he's so much more expressive than the other versions of Link. I also love the cel shaded graphics in Windwaker.

That's a good way to put it. I personally like all the versions of link, especially TP and WW, but I have to say I find the cartoon-y Link to be a lot more amusing to play as.

Eh, he's not my favorite Link.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

I used to hate Toon Link until I saw Wind Waker in HD on an emulator. Now I just think the style was ahead of it's time. On the Wii U it would be BEAUTIFUL! Still prefer the more realistic one though like in Ocarina of Time or Twilight Princess.

I always thought Skyward Sword was a Metroid game, with a Mario artstyle, and a Zelda theme. Either that, or they put Twilight Princess and Wind Waker into a blender and rendered their broken bloody organs onscreen with increased blur to hide the disgusting. It's one way or the other Nintendo, they're both good art styles but they don't get along.

Even though people criticize how cutesy WW was, it doesn't change that it was a God tier Legend of Zelda game. It was a cool change of pace for me personally - I really like the more "cartoony" interpretation of Link and Legend of Zelda.

WW was my first Zelda, at first I thought it was weird when i saw his OoT design. I think I like the WW version more BECAUSE it's cartoony. But for Brawl they should have kept him cel-shaded.

He is speaking to me too. I absolutely detest Toon Link and everything thing he stands for! I wish he would just die already and I hope never to see him in a game again. I mean - why Nintendo to you have to go ahead and spoil eveything: Zelda, Link, Hyrule everything, with this gross and ugly representation?!

I'm really not that good at this game, just better than you.

You miss what nintendo is all about, a differnt type of link is a good thing. The Skyward sword Link is a differnt Type of Link that does'nt make it the wrong one, so the anime "cartoon" link does'nt make it the wrong one either. It all boils down to what you like, I myself LOVE all differnt Links.
